LINE & COUPLES VARIATIONS CHOREOGRAPHED BY JOHN WALTON
This underlying rhythm of the music for this music is a fast samba; the dance lends itself to a variety of variations, some of which can incorporate the samba style of dancing. Samba rhythm consists of a series of "medium, short, long" beats. The following text uses the convention of showing these short beats as "a" beats. They always correspond to short steps.

VARIATION 1: LINE DANCE WITH SAMBA WALKS
Instead of the hip bump sequence during the last 6 counts of the dance, try a "progressive samba walk". You can add any degree of Latin body styling as you wish.

25Left foot forward

26Pivot ½ turn to your right (weight ends on right)

27Smallish step forward on left with half weight (bend both knees slightly)
aBounce up slightly and drag right foot back very slightly
28Drag left foot back slightly
29a30Repeat above on opposite feet
31a32Repeat 27a28 (end with full weight over left)

VARIATION 2: LINE DANCE FOR COUPLES
Except for the last 8 counts, this is the original line dance with a sweetheart hold, and the man just changing sides (and arms) with the turns. The objective of the last 8 counts is to get the man back on the lady's left side, ready to start the next wall. The method shown here is three over the head turns (no cheating!). Start in sweetheart position with the man to the left of the lady and slightly back
